Oval box bag

This oval box bag had a very interesting construction technique.  It's a nice, small size -- only six inches at its widest, four and a half inches deep, and about three inches tall.  I added some top stitching on the handle and on either side of the zipper in the lid just because it seemed appropriate, even though the tutorial didn't call for it.  (The tutorial did call for "stiff interfacing", but again I think I must interpret this differently than other people.  What was pictured didn't look very stiff to me.  I am not very good at matching the interfacing weight to vague descriptions.  I really love it when pattern drafters specify exactly what they used when making the project, even though I know the impulse is to avoid naming the brand so as not to give any free advertising!)

This would be a fun little box to make for someone filled with some treats.  Maybe a good teacher gift for later in the school year?
